Pics of the farm

This morning I thought I would take some pictures of the farm and the house. Of course, I hadn't been out more than a few minutes and I got roped into opening gates, standing by said gate so the cows wouldn't get out, and then closing said gate. Later, I went to help husband just for a "minute" to get the bean head (a part for the combine to harvest soybeans). That ended up with me helping him load fence posts on the tractor tines. Still later, I brought 3 y.o. to the combine so she could ride with Daddy and so I could get my writing assignment done. Well, I ended up having to go help a friend of ours get one of our tractors, opening and closing more gates, etc. etc.
The sky was a beautiful, bright blue; although, the picture of the pond was at a bad angle to the sun so it doesn't show the blue sky.

One of our three bulls with a cow to the right.

On a happy note, I finally finished my writing assignment. I think it was actually due last week - or earlier. This morning, I read a post by Randy Ingermanson. He said to figure out ONE THING that you really want to accomplish in a day. If you get that one thing done, then consider it a great day. Well, I got my one thing done - plus a whole lot more. :o) Happy day!

I also read a good Bible verse this morning. It is Psalm 138:23-24 Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

Welcome to blogging, Patricia! I love your pictures. My, that bull looks . . . serene.

I've heard similar advice about goal-setting: in really hairy times, set one goal for the day that's manageable, even if it's no more than doing the breakfast dishes or throwing a chicken in the crock pot for dinner, and consider the day a success. After all, you have met your goal. :)

Thanks, Marcia (for visiting and commenting on my blog).

My husband doesn't want any of his bulls to be ornery. They are too big to tangle with. I don't particularly like feeding the bulls in the winter, but I have to once in a while. They are so big, I am not comfortable around them.

Hmmm, chicken in the crock pot -- that might be dinner tonight!
